Not to mention that I just finished off Zithromax myself. The clinic and Walgreens pharmacy knows me by name after this cold/flu season since we have seemed to become their #1 customer lol. I've already made a decision to keep the kids in a bubble until we leave for Disney

It took me a lot of time wondering whether or not we should do it and in the end I'm hoping I made the right decision. In our experiences counter service seems to take just as long as most TS meals(and sometimes longer IMO). I just didn't want to deal with the huge lines of CS people, having to grab a seat (or in some cases fight for them lol), make sure everyone has ketchup, utensils, etc...With 3 kids to wait on and a DH it makes meal time even more chaotic it seems.

Also, the DxDP gives the kids a chance to actually order some real food...which both of my girls will for sure appreciate

We liked Ohana last time....I'm not into a lot of meat but I love the salad and pot stickers and of course the dessert FWIW I also loved Kona! I just wanted to try a lot of different things this time around and couldn't find a place to squeeze it in at I will totally be keeping you posted about Ohanas!

What we are all looking forward to the most???

Not that you asked but I am going to tell

Personally I am really looking forward to 3 places the most (and in this order). Flying Fish, Jiko and Cali Grill. I'm still undecided on what to do with LeCellier I really don't want to spend 2 TS on dinner there BUT at the same time I don't want to have a icky meal with a bad cut of meat for lunch either. I feel if I don't go for Dinner then we won't be getting a good meal really. Suggestions anyone??? It's an open evening for us as we are just planning on heading to DTD then dinner then to Epcot for EMH???

Anyway, back to the original subject at hand. I am really going into the first two places with high expectations. I have been dreaming about the snapper @ FF and the crab cake...and the banana dessert Pretty sure @ Jiko I'll be getting the filet and the Tarzanian Chocolate, though undecided about what my appy will be. With California Grill I am totally going for the sushi, the spicy kazan roll in particular! And I LOVE BBQ on my steak so I'll probably get the filet here as well.

Yea, I'm one of those crazies who spends her spare time looking over the menus and trying to figure out in advance what to order. I like to tell DH its because I am trying to tally up the tips roughly before hand but at this point I'm not sure he is buying it Oh well, at least I'm not alone in my obsessions, right??

DH is probably just excited to be able to engorge himself. Ok, that was mean. Ummm...actually he is just happy to be getting the opportunity to eat different foods that are not available back home. I'm telling you, its the same ol' same ol' here when it comes to going out to eat. My kids love going out for nice dinners but we are pretty limited. Red Lobster which I have to rate as a 9 on the pain scale lol, Big Boy which is probably a 9.5, and so on and so on. I've gotten to the point in which nothing even sounds good here and I think we are all just dying to try some new, exciting (to us) food.

The girls are exciting about everything but for some reason are really looking forward to dining in France for whatever reason. Give me creme brulee and I will be content Lily is also talking about Ohana a lot and how much she can't wait to do the coconut races there.

They do not know they are going to BBB and they are totally unaware of our ADR for Cinderellas Royal Table. That was one secret I was able to keep, thankfully .

*sigh* the time has come for me to go back to the real world now. The laundry is calling my name...Ah well, in 11 days from now I will be flying out of Detroit Metro on my way to WDW!!!!

Yep! Twin girls - they're the light of my life

And while they sleep (like right now!) I spend my time reading every single thread here. It's really a problem. Doctor Phil would not be happy with my obsessive Disney tendencies lol

I'm in! Sounds like you have a well-thought out plan. I am also undecided about LeCellier.

We feel the same way and my little one is 15! I can't imagine dealing with CS with little ones. I much prefer TS.

We ended up decided to do Le Cellier for lunch. The new menu doesn't thrill me. DS has wanted to try lunch there for several trips. We actually did go at lunch time on our Christmas trip in '09 but it was the dinner menu. So for this trip, lunch it is for us.

lilandvisma Looking forward to your reviews, I am thinking of going to many of the same places, so I'm sure this will be helpful when booking my own ADRS. Safe travels!!

Everyone (knock on wood!) seems to be feeling back to normal now. It seemed to take FOREVER to get here though. Now the plan is to keep everyone inside for a week until we leave!

Ohh I am really bad with secrets so I don't really know how I have kept it this long to tell you the truth

Thanks, welcome! I'm excited to get started on them in one week just about! I think we are going to cancel out LeCellier for Yachtsman though, per DH's request (blame it on the porterhouse there hehe). I also was thinking of Tutto instead of Le Chefs but time will tell I suppose with that one because we are still undecided at the moment!

Another thing I'm bad with...making decisions

We are down to 7 days from now!!! It's hard to believe
